Reunion Island sea slugs.
To confirm Colin Ogden message [#14850] about the presence of this species in the east of Indian Ocean. I send these two specimens with a little variation in the coloration pattern. (one or two orange band on the rhinophore, importance of pinkish-purple spots on the mantle)
Locality: Saint Leu, Reunion island, Indian ocean. Depth: 10-15 m. Photographer: Emmanuel Eby
Are they really two specimens of Hypselodoris cf maculosa?

These animals certainly look like what I am 'pigeon-holing' as Hypselodoris cf maculosa. I am not sure if it is a distinct species, or a strange colour form of H. maculosa, which is quite variable in colour, or perhaps I have mixed up more than one species. I just feel it is better putting them together to alert us all to the possibility, rather than just identifying them as H. maculosa, where they will be forgotten.
